The Child Welfare Training Partnership’s vision is to provide competency based training and research aimed at improving the safety, permanency, well-being for Vermont’s most vulnerable children, youth and families. The Department of Mental Health Law and Policy, Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute (FMHI), College of Behavioral and Community Sciences, University of South Florida (USF) invites applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship. The Curtis Center will accept applications from candidates with proposed research agendas in the areas of: (1) integrated health, mental health, and behavioral health; (2) disease management (e.g., cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, etc.); (3) geriatric social work or aging; or (4) palliative care. The postdoctoral fellow will be invited to contribute to the development of a broader collaborative program of research on literacy programs for vulnerable children and their families.To be considered for the fellowship, candidates should have an emerging record of scholarship, as well as a strong motivation to contribute further to the development of the evidence-based in an area related to vulnerable children with links to literacy, school preparedness or cognitive development.
The research and training plan of each fellowship must address important scientific questions within the scope of the SBE Directorate and the specific guidelines in this fellowship solicitation. The University of Maryland School of Social Work is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join a research team conducting basic and clinical research related to risk and protective factors, with a focus on the prevention of psychosis and suicide.
The postdoctoral fellow will work primarily to analyze data, collaborate on empirical papers to submit to leading journals, develop grant proposals, and take an active role in ongoing prevention and early intervention research projects.
Areas of interest to the Fund are: studies to develop, refine, evaluate, or disseminate innovative interventions designed to prevent or ameliorate major social, psychological, behavioral or public health problems affecting children, adults, couples, families, or communities, or studies that have the potential for adding significantly to knowledge about such problems. The Robertson Fellowship is offered by the Violence Prevention Research Program (VPRP) at the University of California, Davis.
It is available on a competitive basis to individuals who have completed a doctoral degree program (Ph D, Dr PH, MD) and are making a long-term commitment to violence research, either as their primary career focus or in conjunction with a career in a clinical health profession. The Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect, a section of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, announces the availability of a Berger Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Child Abuse and Neglect.

Training focuses particularly on health disparities, but applications will be considered in other areas. We invite applications from qualified candidates for two-year fellowships.
Advanced training is available under the mentorship of the nationally-recognized faculty of the Heller School for Social Policy and Management.
The fellowship provides opportunities for early career development, publication, supervision by national research leaders, and experience working on interdisciplinary teams. NIJ is seeking proposals to support the scholarship of up to three promising postdoctoral researchers to conduct original data collection and/or secondary data analyses on violence against women (intimate partner violence, sexual violence, teen dating violence, stalking) under the supervision of a mentor.
Any specific topic that offers important insights into research on violence against women will receive consideration. The program was developed to address the current concerns about an adequate funding base for postdoctoral fellows who specifically direct their research towards translational findings and who will demonstrate how their research will have direct benefits to human aging. The Alcohol Research Group (ARG) draws experts from diverse fields, such as public health, epidemiology, psychology, and economics, and our research addresses a wide range of topics, from basic epidemiology to treatment and health services research.
Our Early Career Fellowship Program (formerly called the Early Career Scholars Program) provides support for recent doctoral recipients to advance their research, teaching, and long-term career prospects. Eligible candidates should have a doctoral degree in social work, a social science, or a related discipline.
